Major Bug Fixes v3.17.0
1. Tracking been switch off when other apps have being used in foreground mode.
2. Driver app getting stuck when switch to google maps via navigation button.
Both issues has been resolved but during the testing process we have found there is another issue which is related to Android 7+ version where system switch off tracking within few minutes when used in background mode. This issue is related to React Native Expo technology EasyTaxiOffice app uses which appears not to be compatible with latest Android update. We are not developers of this technology, so at the moment we are awaiting support from React Native team.
We have implement temporary solution for Android 7+ version users. We have created a setting Location Updates (available in top-right corner of the app). Driver who lose tracking while using driver app in background mode, we advice to switch to Foreground mode.
Switch off and on the app to have your app updated. We expect this update solves both issues but we would love to hear your feedback, especially if this solution doesn’t work.
3. Driver could proceed with the job while not appearing on dispatcher map.
Driver status system has been revamped. New system will require driver to change status to Available and agree to being track before being able change booking status and start the job. Driver status system consist of:
– Driver can change booking status to On Route and start the job only when switch to Available status.
– Changing to status Available requires the driver to accept being tracked and be visible on dispatcher map.
– When status is change to Available, driver will be track and will appear on dispatcher map marked with color Green (available – not on the job) or Red (unavailable – currently on the job).
Status On Break:
– On Break status allows driver to inform the company he/she is On Break but still display their location.
– Changing to status On Break requires the driver to accept being tracked and be visible on dispatcher map.
– On the map his status is marked in Blue.
– Changing to this status, disable tracking and driver is no longer visible on the dispatcher map.
– Driver can change booking status to Cancel at any time.
